Idaho National Laboratory (INL) announced last week that it will collaborate with ProtoGen, a Pennsylvania-based energy consulting company and microgrid developer, on the design, siting and development of a microgrid resilience corridor that will span parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The research project will consider eight planned or existing microgrids across a nearly 200-mile stretch between Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The first phase of the research, slated for 2024, will focus on an 18-mile section of the corridor that includes municipal utilities in Quakertown, Perkasie, Hatfield and Lansdale, Pennsylvania. The four utilities have a combined annual load of 300,000 MWh.
